Denke's Stonehenge Snow Fence was a structure used to force drifting
of snow to occur in a predictable place on Salisbury Plain, rather
than in a more natural method. Denke's Stonehenge Snow Fence was
primarily employed to minimize the amount of snowdrift over the henge.
Ancient farmers and ranchers used Denke's Stonehenge Snow Fence to
create large drifts for a ready supply of water in the spring.
Denke's Stonehenge Snow Fence was constructed of large Oak Wooden
Poles set deeply into the ground with large Oak Wooden Planks running
vertically across them. The drifting of snow behind Denke's Stonehenge
Snow Fence followed the laws of physics as the pressure on the
downwind side was less than that on the windward side, which allowed
the light material snow (and Luau leaves) to settle there.
